On the way to Kidepo Valley National Park we stopped for a few minutes in a small village to allow another vehicle traveling with us to catch up. We didn't even get out of the jeep, but in that time a bunch of local people crowded around us to watch us. They didn't ask for anything or try to sell us anything, but rather just checked us out; just pure innocent curiosity.
This is not something you encounter often in this region of the world - it's pretty heavily traveled by tourists, UN and NGO workers and religious zealots (aka missionaries) and most locals have seen enough of all of these to not have much innocent curiosity about them left. Historically, most visitors to Kidepo Valley park fly in and out, thus the rough overland route to the park, which we were taking, wasn't frequently traveled and it allowed us to interact with these local villagers in this way.
I was initially reluctant to point my camera at these folks, but when my safari-mates in the jeep with me started to and the locals didn't object I started shooting. I recall the initial flinch they all made when I pulled out my telephoto lens (did they think it was a gun or weapon?), but didn't otherwise seem to mind my shooting these candid photos of them. No doubt they didn't know quite how closeup I was able to get.
